They have a broad diet. He will eat shrimp and might eat Nori. Mine likes lettuce, but prefers meaty foods.

Tangs need a variety of foods. I feed mine spirulina or vegetable matter flakes, dried seaweed, Mysis shrimp and vitamin fortified brine shrimp. I don't know how soon you just got him but it might take a few days while he gets acclimated to the tank.

Give it some time. You can also try a garlic additive, it is hard for them to resist.
